F1 2012, Codemasters Racing's latest iteration of the sensational sim, will feature a new challenge mode that throws players into gruelling head-to-head competition against six F1 superstars.
F1 2012’s Champions Mode will challenge players to take on each of the six champions in turn, starting with Kimi Räikkönen, followed by Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Sebastian Vettel, Fernando Alonso and ultimately Michael Schumacher. Each champion has his own race scenario, which must be beaten to unlock the next challenge.
“The Kimi Räikkönen challenge sees the player join a race as Kimi’s teammate at Spa Francorchamps," explains the accompanying press release. "The player has just pitted and is on new tyres while the rest of the pack is on worn rubber with three laps to go until the end of the race. In order to complete the scenario the player has to race through the pack and overtake Kimi before the end of the race.”
